Essie Nail Polish in Lilacism, €9.99

There’s no easier pick-me-up than a pastel nail.

Topshop Red Check Shirred Midi Dress, €57

For wearing around the house now, with slippers, and with Birkenstocks when summer comes.

Rathbornes Dublin Tea Rose, Oud & Patchouli Candle, €36

Did you know that Rathbornes, founded in Dublin in 1488, is the world’s oldest candle company? I’ve been handling social isolation by lighting all the good candles that I’ve been saving for “when guests come over” (candle scents go off you know! Light the fancy candle tonight!) which led to me finally lighting this Dublin Tea Rose, Oud & Patchouli dream candle. The soft, floral scent is so powerful that it has managed to scent my bedroom everyday without even being lit.

Glossier Rosewater Soothing Face Mist, €17

Meet Glossier’s most underrated product – a calming face mist that smells like roses. Keep it deskside for a hydrating pick-me-up.

Tekla Fabrics Cotton Bathrobe in Stella Pink, €159 

Oversized, extra soft and made for working from home.

Anissa Kermiche Love Handles Vase, €390

I think about Anissa Kermiche’s big bum vases a lot. They make me so happy. It’s just the interiors touch the background of your morning Zoom calls need, right?

Ganni Striped Cotton Scrunchie, €20

Hangover hair but make it fashion.

Armani/Privé Orangerie Venise, €156

Created by master perfumer Dominique Ropion (Portrait of a Lady, Flowerbomb, La Vie Est Belle and lots more perfumes you love), the brief for this blend was ‘Venetian orangerie’ and that’s the best description you’ll find. Neroli perfection – this is summer bottled.
